baby, it is getting cold outside! what better time than now to snuggle up with a great book. here are the titles we are planning to dig into this month:

the queen of the night by alexander chee
after 15 years, we finally get to experience the much-anticipated follow-up to chee's heartbreaking debut, edinburgh. the queen of the night is a tragic, historical epic that follows a famed opera star during france's second empire.

when breath becomes air by paul kalanithi
this memoir was written by the late doctor after being diagnosed with stage iv lung cancer at the age of 36. when breath becomes air is an exploration confronting mortality and what it means to have lived a truly meaningful life in the face of death.

in other words by jhumpa lahiri
the pulizer prize-winning author of modern classics like the interpreter of maladies and the namesake recently published her first autobiographical work. in other words (written in italian and translated to english) investigates expression through language and recounts lahiri's time in rome while trying to fully immerse herself in her love of the italian language.
